    Brain Health Center - Sleep Evaluation

    Sleep disorders can negatively impact cognitive functioning: an individual cannot think clearly if they are sleep deprived. But sleep problems are not always obvious, so we may request referral to a sleep center.

    The most basic test done at a sleep center is called a PSG (polysomnogram). During this study, the patient spends the night at a sleep clinic and is observed by a trained technician.

    If a sleep disorder such as OSA (Obstructive Sleep Apnea), RLS (Restless Leg Syndrome), or other treatable conditons are seen, an intervention such as CPAP (Continuous Positive Airway Pressure) or other suggestions could improve sleep and mental clarity.
